It’s been a long time coming, but we’ve finally heard all 24 entries for Italy’s Festival di Sanremo 2020. All two dozen songs were premiered over the last two nights — 4 and 5 February — on the famed Teatro Ariston stage.
And now that all the tracks have debuted, the bookies have a new number one — Elodie.
Sanremo Festival 2020 Odds: Elodie favourite to win
According to multiple betting outlets — William Hill, Unibet, Bet 365 and 888 Sport — Elodie is doing it for the ladies. The new favourite is trading with odds as low as 3.00.
The “Andromeda” singer is a returnee to the contest, last competing in 2017 with “Tutta colpa mia”. That song peaked at number 12 on the Italian chart and was certified platinum.
Will she be heading to Eurovision this time round?
Sanremo 2020: Other favourites
Currently sitting second in the bookies odds with odds of 5.00 is Eurovision 2017 alum Francesco Gabbani. His song “Viceversa” is currently leading the provisional leaderboard published after the second evening of song.
The “Occidentali’s Karma” singer was always going to be in the mix and it looks like he is in it to win it again.
In third with Unibet is Diodato with his song “Fai rumore”. At the beginning of the year, Diodato was overlooked at odds of 21.00. Now he can be backed at 7.50 – a huge leap into contention.
Another Sanremo returnee, Diodato came second in the 2014 Newcomers’ category.
Pre-contest bookies’ favourite Alberto Urso is all the way down in eleventh spot with odds of 15.0. Eurovision 2011’s Raphael Gualazzi is in joint 15th. Meanwhile, the controversial Junior Cally joins a slew of acts at the very bottom of the rankings.
